Arnaldo-Caprai Sagrantino Sagrantino di Montefalco Collepiano 1996

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This was tight and tough offering up some evolved scents of dusty, old books and dried funghi on the nose that was joined by hints of mint and braised beef. With a big, rich entry this offers a very tannic medium bodied feel with solid blueberry fruit behind the softening tannins. The quality of the fruit is almost Australian with a noticable vanilla top note. The finish offers some contrasting minerality but remains tough and ruggged. This is still painfully young. Drink 2002-2020
